GB 1898 SG197 Cover Locally within Torquay

Stock Code: P201001512

1898 ½d Vermilion. Very fine envelope sent locally within Torquay bearing a vertical pair of ½d Vermilions (SG 197) tied by Torquay "805" duplexes for SP.12.1898. The address has been written in a spectacular Anamorphic writing style reading "Miss Gardener 117 Abbey Road Torquay". These anamorphic writing styles are an application of perspective anamorphism. A well defined viewpoint or view direction is needed to see the address correctly. In this case, the view direction has to be at a very sharp angle almost flat across the surface of the text image.
